Game of Thrones with Ian McElhinney
It’s Game of Thrones time here at Flicks And The City! And what better way to continue our regular GoT series than by chatting with actor Ian McElhinney who plays Ser Barristan Selmy on the show?
Ser Barristan served in the Kingsguard for almost 40 years before getting his marching orders from the king everyone loves to hate, Joffrey Baratheon.
After being absent from our screens in season 2, Ser Barristan’s back in season 3 and this time he’s on Team Targaryen.
We caught up with Ian at Wales Comic Con where we talked all things GoT!
Check out the video to see what Ian says about season 3, joining Team Targaryen, life with Cersei and Joffrey, who has what it takes to come out on top in Game of Thrones, Jon Snow, whether Daenerys would make a good Queen of the 7 Kingdoms, what it takes to survive in GoT, who Barristan would most like to bump off, working with Lena Headey (Cersei) and Jack Gleeson (Joffrey), filming in Morocco, working with Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), filming in Belfast’s Paint Hall, how Northern Ireland has become a significant film location, and how Ian would fare in Barristan Selmy’s world:
